Published:  Sep 2022 Report Code: KSI061613238 Pages: 120

The global mercury analyzer market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.33% during the forecast period, reaching a total market size of US$108.646 million in 2027 from US$58.171 million in 2020.

Mercury analyzers are used for analyzing mercury in the environment. Mercury has the ability to get absorbed on most surfaces. The mercury analyzer is used for analyzing mercury in sample form (solid, liquid, or gas), plastic, food, living body samples, factory effluent, environmental water, drink water, sewerage, environmental air, working environment, LPG, etc. The market for mercury analyzers is being driven by a robust increase in advancement in science and technology, which is driving the demand for cost-efficient mercury analyzers across end-use industries.

Growing agriculture, forestry, and fishing industries and stringent government regulations are augmenting the demand for mercury analyzers.

According to the World Bank, agriculture, forestry, and fishery value-added contributed to US$4.17 trillion in 2021, up from US$3.51 trillion in 2019. This industry can be heavily impacted if they get affected by mercury in the environment. The release of mercury into the environment by industries will directly lead to a harmful impact on the survival of fish and wildlife, which, in turn, will bolster the demand for mercury analyzers.

Environmental regulations

The imposition of stringent environmental regulations by governments and international organizations to limit the discharge of mercury and other toxic compounds into the environment is further contributing significantly to the market growth of mercury analyzers globally. For instance, in July 2019, Japan’s Ministry of the Environment, in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme, announced a new project to protect the environment and human health from the severe impacts of mercury, investing up to US$3 million. The project aims to establish a regional mercury monitoring laboratory network in the Asia-Pacific region while providing capacity building and training around the region. 

Advancement in the biotechnology sector is also boosting the market growth of mercury analyzers.

This is because mercury analyzers are increasingly being used in the biology field for the determination of mercury in urine, hair, saliva, and blood. The market for mercury analyzers is also majorly driven by their availability in a wide range of products, including portable mercury trackers, mercury vapour monitors, mercury lab analyzers, online mercury analyzers, and ultra-tracer mercury detectors.

By measurement method, thermal decomposition has a significant share in the market

By measurement method, the thermal decomposition segment holds a significant market share. Thermal decomposition is used when the concentration range of a measuring object is wide (ppb to ppm order, etc.), as it is easy to generate a memory effect, thus making thermal decomposition more suitable. The market for this measurement method is rising with its wide applications for organic and inorganic matter or for composite materials.  Because they are more suitable for concentration measurement, reducing vaporization mercury analyzers are used for measuring large amounts of samples at once.

The energy and power sector is one of the major markets for mercury analyzer vendors

Mercury analyzers are majorly used for monitoring the environment due to the growing number of regulations regarding environmental protection and active participation by various countries towards environmental sustainability. Growing global electricity consumption is leading to a rise in the mercury level in the environment. According to World Bank data, access to electricity to the percentage increased from 90% in 2019 to 90.5% in 2020. As the electric utility industry is the largest mercury emitter, this rising electricity consumption will correspondingly increase the release of mercury into the environment, thus driving the market growth of mercury analyzers worldwide.

North America holds a major market share

Regionally, the global mercury analyzer market is classified into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. Growing industries such as the food and beverage and chemical industries in countries like the U.S. and Canada are fueling the market growth of mercury analyzers in this region. Moreover, strict environmental regulations that are needed to be followed by industries are further propelling the market growth across this region. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market owing to the rising number of industries and growing awareness regarding environmental pollution and the effects of mercury on health. This is further increasing the sustainable transformation of environmental policies and various regulations that are being implemented by countries for environmental protection, thereby positively impacting the market growth in this region.

COVID-19 Impact on Mercury Analyzer Market

The coronavirus outbreak has affected numerous countries and industries owing to the restrictions of lockdowns to contain the spreading virus. Furthermore, the global manufacturing industry suffered during lockdown due to COVID-19 which affected the supply of raw materials on a large scale. Thus, impacting the overall growth of the mercury analyzer market. But, the major user of mercury analyzers recognized the extensive use of the product during the pandemic as the demand for electricity grew post-pandemic. For instance, IEA recorded a hike of 4.6% in the global energy demand in 2021.
